Lefties and righties

SDS

Had to login and ask this question that has bothered me for the last few years of this game. Why can’t you let us know if we are facing a left handed or right handed pitcher before a diamond dynasty game? And even now after you took away the random pitcher we should now know who we are facing if we get to pick our pitcher.... really lame

SDS

We used to be able to, and people stacked their lineups with lefty hitters and backed out anytime it showed a lefty on the mound, it was the most annoying system ever.

SDS

They need a system where you can adjust your lineup using your bench players only prior to the game

Or make it so that if you quit after the lineup screen shows, you get the loss.

Meh I’d take pitcher roulette back over this.

It doesn’t matter if someone was to stack lefties vs righties or R v L. That’s baseball, that’s what any manager would do prior to the game if he had the players to do that with. So to me there is absolutely no reason we can’t know what arm we are facing.

So 80%+ of lineups have all lefties? Don’t think so.

What a crybaby. That’s baseball go play another sport son.

No, because managers don't have hundreds of cards to choose from to start, they can't just select the best 8 hitting lefties of all time and decide to start them against righties.
They are limited by their 25 man roster, so that argument doesn't fly.
